“When my husband and I were searching for an employment lawyer for the first time in our life, we were very frustrated as there were so many lawyers out there and didn’t know where to go. I carefully read many reviews and success rates and made our choice to with Mr. Miguel Mangalindan at Monkhouse and we were very correct on our decision made. He was very kind, easy to deal with and yet remained his professionalism with lots of knowledge with good advice and recommendation. We sure won the case and received the settlement to the point we wanted (or more I should say). It was very well worth hiring Mr. Mangalindan as our lawyer. As we hope that we don’t want to be in any kind of dispute situation ever again, IF we do in the future, I know where to go and who to deal with. I strongly recommend Miguel and his team for your employment dispute case!” – EY
